MISSION STATEMENTFriends of the children support generational change by empowering youth who are facing the greatest obstacles through relationships with professional mentors for 12+ years—no matter what. Each child receives 4 hours a week of direct 1:1 time with a paid, professional mentor called a friend. Each Friend spends time with eight youth in the classroom, community and our Clubhouse.
